    GS Audio Impressions Thread

    Problem with the GD3A is some harshness in the highs, I guess it's why on the video you can see the (wide bore) stock tips are used on the GD5, not on the GD3A. To tame the highs a bit, you have to use some tips with narrower bore, that's what I did with with mine, they sound pretty good now...

    Moondrop in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    I'm in the same boat concerning bass, bass is soft with any genre I listen to. I can't expect it to be as tight and fast as BA, but I know DD can do better than this, there's no punch/impact when needed.

    Rockbox Xduoo X3

    Vortex decided to do it on his own, not collaborating with other RB developpers and not providing source code in the beginning. See here : http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php/topic,51139.msg236712.html#msg236712   And here at 19:00 : http://www.rockbox.org/irc/log-20160328

    Great news, I have some cheap replacement case, but I prefer the original.

    Same here, I'm expecting a more balanced sound than Easy UEs, warm&sweet rather than basshead.(ordered mine from ShenzhenAudio on ebay)

    They're good but not great unless you're basshead, they're too unbalanced, if you're coming from bassy or warm&sweet earphones, the gap in bass quantity is not too much, if you're more into balanced or worse, bright signature, Easy UEs are not for you. I've been doing some long listening with...

    X1 has a very good line out, heaphone out is different from X3, warmer, less spacious, better with vocals.

    Another nice review, I still have to wait a little before listening to them.

    HI2050 and Pro80 became rare, this is why they're more expensive, finding HI2050 for 40$ is a real bargain (ordered mine in November 2011 for 52$), now it's mostly around 80$. I'm not sure M30x can compare in comfort, build and sound quality, but any source can drive it easily.

    No, you should pay the VAT, but when using national posts, it's unusual unless the value is high. When using services like DHL, UPS, Fedex and some others they declare everything, you have to pay VAT and handling charges. Many asian sellers are used to that and the value on the parcel is...

    Other sellers use Singapore Post, it's faster with better tracking, for example my Xduoo X3, ordered on March 29, received on April 12.

    Same for me, and using the inverse mode in Rockbox LCD Settings don't improve a lot, let's hope it's not a hardware thing.
